The National Quality Forum seeks to endorse a set of preferred practices and performance measures in care coordination that are applicable across all settings of care.

Modern Healthcare reports that the quality-endorsing body hopes to fill out its framework for measuring care coordination with measures that address national goals established by its National Priorities Partnership—such as enhanced patient communication and reducing 30-day readmission rates and preventable emergency visits.

The NQF said it also wants to consider measures that address team-based care, effective patient transitions, medication reconciliation and reduced duplication of services. The framework includes the domains of a healthcare “home,” proactive plan of care, communication, information systems and transitions.
